Founded in 1985, duPont REGISTRY has spent the last 30 years revolutionizing the classic, exotic and luxury car market, forever changing the way those cars are bought and sold.
Since the premier of our May 1985 issue, our magazine has connected buyers and sellers across the globe for three decades. Before the duPont REGISTRY, there was nowhere else you could go to find the world’s most exclusive vehicles for sale all in one place.
“Color images of beautiful vehicles, available worldwide, on heavy stock pages and in an environment of like minded sellers and upscale products,” says Ron Barretto, a duPont REGISTRY associate that has been with us from the very beginning, of what made the publication revolutionary. “The only other options were newspaper classifieds and newsprint quality traders, hardly an environment for serious buyers and sellers.”
Now in our 30th year of operation, the duPont REGISTRY name is found on our flagship automobile brand, as well as our homes, boats, luxury living and automotive news brands, both in print and online. From our beginning and throughout our future, duPont REGISTRY will always be THE one-stop shopping experience for buyers and sellers of the world’s finest cars.

For the cover of our 30th anniversary issue, we decided to span three decades with Porsche supercars on our magazine: the 959, the Carrera GT-based Gemballa Mirage GT and the 918 Spyder.
Starting off, in 1986, the Porsche 959 began production as the marque’s first supercar. In fact, many regard the 959 as being the forefather of modern day supercars.
After years of silence in the supercar market from Porsche, they announced the Carrera GT in the early 2000s. It began production in 2004 and was an immediate success. Gemballa, the famed aftermarket company that has done great work with Porsches, took their expertise to the Carrera GT and created the Mirage GT.
Now, in 2015, Porsche has given us the gift of the 918 Spyder, the latest supercar from the German brand. But, the 918 is more than just a supercar, because it is also a technological leap for Porsche.
